Small Huntsmen Update

A small update on the painting situation. I took a few minutes off last night from finishing up a presentation for my viva, to get a few coats of Thraka Green Ink onto the armour. I wanted a nice emerald green colour for the armour and I hope I've achieved it. Instead of taking pictures of every single mini on the team again, I will focus on the blitzers from now on when I'm updating as its just easier for me taking pictures. Don't worry all other mini's in the team are being painted too.

There might not be any more updates until next week, busy time this weekend!

My first game of Bloodbowl

What an awesome game Bloodbowl is! Myself and my mate had a barrel of laughs last night. I had never played before and Phil hadn't played in about five years so the game was a slow one as we conventially ignored the four minute a turn rule so I could pick up the rules as we went along. I must have picked them up fairly fast as the Huntsmen recorded their first ever victory 2-0 against Phil's Orc team. I might never play again to keep that 100% record!

The second score clinched it for me halfway through the second half as Phil was experiencing an injury crisis with two orcs stretchered off and one sent of for a particularly brutal play off the ball. The ball was knocked lose in a cruching tackle made by my blitzer against his catcher, it proceed to be fumbled by three pairs of hands. (A black orc, an orc linesman and my second blitzer) before it landed in the bread-basket of my catcher who was lurking dangerously, which left him with a short run in to the line. Phil promptly conceeded.

I only took too pictures as I was having so much fun I forgot the camera for the majority of the evening.

A general shot, the ogre provided a rock solid backbone to the centre of the field

An in action shot of the only pass I threw all game, which my catcher in the distance promptly fumbled. He redeemed himself the following turn by picking up the ball and running in for my first touchdown after some sterling blocking by my linesmen and blitzers.

Happy New Year!

Hi guys,

I hope everyone had a very peaceful and happy holiday season. The primary gifting period was quite good to me, with my brothers giving me the large scale forgeworld space marine. I already have plans afoot for that bad boy.

Having taken a break over the christmas period from any hobby related activities I jumped back in yesterday and started painting my bloodbowl team. I have decided to go with a green and white colour scheme, matching my home town hurling club and county teams colours.

Pictures away!!!!!!!!






So as you can see still some fairly early WiP pictures. Updates as they happen.
